Christmas 2018 Bartop Still Life   Leave a comment

Maker's Mark Still Life-Edit-1-blogChristmas 2018 Bartop Still Life — Photo-Artistry by kenne

We have lived at Tanuri Ridge
These eight Christmas years.
No Christmas trees over the years,
Instead, we add Holiday touches
To art, plants, whiskey bottles —
Our world exceeds stillness.

Which One Is The Real James   1 comment

 

 

 

 

James is a challenge to photograph — Images by kenne

The quiet of Christmas morning,
everyone is still asleep as the sun
comes through the front windows

where the traveling bonsai trees,
Fica and Camellia, cast their shadows
on the table under the windows.

The smell of fresh coffee brewing
made special this morning, having
mixed in mocha with the Pike Place.

Later, the dogs enter the kitchen
having concluded their mistress
isn’t getting up to let them out.

Checking the Weather Channel App
having added towns where
family and friends live

from coast to coast,
Kate in the Northeast
and Lisa in the Northwest

are experiencing
the white Christmas
others can only dream.

Some days it is tough
To get your act together
Being tangled-up.

Christmas 2012Christmas Full Moon, December 2012 — Image by kenne

I’m posting this image from 2012 because this year there’s not going to be a Christmas full moon.
This year the December full moon was on the 3rd and January 2018 will have two full moons.

December full moon
Appeared early in the month
Now no Christmas moon —

Boomer!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL   5 comments

Jaxon's Xmas Tree CARDArtwork by Kenne Jaxon Bailey (December 2017)

For many years I have used Photoshop to create electronic Christmas cards.
This year I am collaborating with our five-year-old kindergarten grandson, Jaxon.
Maybe I’ve started a tradition!

In the paper
in the scissors
in the lines
in the colors
in the string of lights
in the wonder of his eyes —
JAXON —
in the star.

My Favorite Christmas Gift   4 comments

Balance Cactus (1 of 1) art blogBalancing Cactus — Image by kenne

This year we celebrated Christmas with family in Houston and my favorite gift was “Balancing Cactus”. OK, so it’s not a saguaro, but it’s a lot of fun to play with — for children 3 and older.
